BACK IN HAITI
I had a safe trip into Haiti. Safe travel is something I do not take for granted.. Thanks for your prayers... It is always great to see Pastor Wilbert and his family.. It was also great to see Rebecca and Joeann who have been here for nearly 2 months helping out at the orphanage.. They will go back to Canada with me on the 15th of Dec. arriving home on the 16th. On my way to Haiti I had meetings Monday morning in Edmonton with Marvin from Progressive Food, the Hendriks family and some of the men from a Colony from Manitoba.
We are working together to try to find ways to get more food into Haiti. With 400 children dying each day the need is huge.. Thanks to Kids Against Hunger and their partners Urban Refuge and Evergreen the goal is to get a million meals to our children here in Haiti. Prairie Gleaners out of Medicine Hat is dehydrating vegetable to be sent over to us in the next couple of month. Now with the possibility of connecting with Progressive foods, we will be able to turn these horrible statistics around. With the children and staff we have and the ones that are waiting we could be feeding 3,560,000 meals over the next 12 months. We are needing more people to partner with us to make an impact on these numbers... We don't just want to put a band aid on the situation.. With these numbers we are impacting the lives of just over 12,000 people.. The numbers that are starving here range in the area of 500,000... Will you help make a difference.. Please make your tax deductible donation to: Lifeline Haiti ... 1008 College Dr. SE, Medicine Hat, AB, T1A 7J1 ... Please drop me a note to: firstname.lastname@example.org if your able to help. The children are waiting to hear from you.....
